Following the latest developments in Intel's and AMD 's mobo chipsets which support the DDRII memory, a faster Kingmax DDRII 800 will soon make its debut in the following months, after the DDRII 533/667 completes mass production, company says.
Intel's recent release of the 955X/945 chipset quickly captured the attention of many major
motherboard manufacturers. The new 955/945 chipset supports 1066 MHz FSB and DDRII memory, with
increased capacity for the latter. Intel's latest chipset roadmaps indicate that the Broadwater
chipset, which is set for launch in Q2 2006, will also support dual channel DDRII800 memory.
In addition, according to recent news, AMD will soon be releasing an upgraded memory controller for
its Athlon 64 and Opteron platforms, with full support for DDRII. Suffice to say, the age of DDRII
Kingmax owns packaging and testing advanced equipment for memory modules. With a complete, vertically
integrated supply chain, Kingmax operates its own packaging facilities and handles the entire
manfacturing process from purchasing and dicing of wafers, testing and packaging, to testing of the
For the past seven years, Kingmax has been developing its Ball Grid Array (BGA) packaging and has
successfully applied the process to mass production of its SDRAM and DDR products. This proprietary
patented memory technology -- TinyBGA packaging technology -- is widely lauded in industry circles.
In Q2 of this year, Kingmax started to use T5593 testing equipment in its operations ? an investment
worth nearly USD 10 million. As a leading manufacturer of memory modules, Kingmax has also made large
investments in R&D and testing and production facilities. With T5593 equipment, Kingmax is able to
perform strict tests to ensure speeds over 800MHz on our memory chips, and mass produce the
highest-quality DDRII-800 memory module available.
